What is a Volunteer?
Per Webster’s New World Dictionary, a VOLUNTEER is defined as “one who chooses freely to do something”. How simple this sounds, but how great the results can be as a result of this “simple” activity.
The Ocean Isle Beach Sea Turtle Protection Organization currently has a base of over 50 great people who have chosen to become involved in the activity of protecting and saving sea turtles and educating the public on what they can do to help.
Our volunteer staff can become as involved as their time permits. However, each volunteer hour is equally important to the success of OUR organization.
The OIB Sea Turtle Protection Organization Coordinators are committed to provide all necessary training and “hands on” experience to all our volunteers in the areas listed below that they wish to become a part of:
- Nest management & organization
- Beach observation for sea turtle activity
- Sea turtle nest markings & security
- Nest parenting including nest close out
- Paper & timely reporting
- Finding and reporting cause of death of stranded sea turtles
- Rescue & transportation:
- Timely response to live stranded sea turtles and proper techniques to transport to the required rehab facility with follow-up reporting
- Lecture series and outreach education:
- Educate the general public as to the plight of the sea turtles and what we all can do to assure their survival.
All training will be in strict compliance with the North Carolina Volunteer Sea Turtle Manual, Rev. 2006.
